I said I wanted to slash at hhis pilot.  he said there was an autopilot system in the back that controlled everything.  I said I wanted to blow up his missiles.  he said they were resistant to damage.

In short, brikwussiness.  do you agree when I say this is too absurd to be realistic or fun?

1-OTC wins over anything. The cockpit would have been destroyed.
2-The perfect timing and you could blast the rotor off without being chopped to pieces.
3-You should go for the autopilot then the pilot, then.
4-You should have robbed the missiles and have them thrown back at the helicopter.

6. Lists should always start at 6.

i use realism in the brikwars meaning. ie an otc in brikwars realism can and will always win. or something like "what would a laser firing shark do?..."
i would not suddenly say oh and now he can...ummmm fly! ya he can fly! no he would have to find some sort of goblet of the sky. or amulet thing maybe? so ya brikwars has chaotic realism  :D

...and that is why you are boring and brim full of fail. Oh, sure, rules have their place and I've played many, many systems with enough rules to choke a horse but for example Kieeimiester's Shark or Midget firing guns are full of win and lulz.

Perhaps this is what you could try thinking...

Yeah, he can fly. How can I achieve this? Explosive Spring loaded underpants! Did it work, not very likely but hey, it'll be a laugh. Set difficulty to high and make a roll.

Gizmo's lying about, nothing wrong with that. But all the time is predictable. Predictable Chaos, are you sure?

You win this round, Mr. Warhead.  But I'll get you one day.
